About Phillip Joel Hughes
MiddlesexS-B-Cs Australian opener Phillip Hughes has been named as the Cricket World County Player Of The Week following his remarkable start to his career in England. Hughes made 118 in his first innings for Middlesex against Glamorgan at LordS-B-Cs, following that up with 65 not out in the second innings to help Middlesex secure a draw. He then marked his debut in the Friends Provident Trophy with an innings of 74, sharing an opening stand worth 147 with Billy Godleman which set Middlesex on their way towards an emphatic 162-run win over Scotland. Hughes could reacquaint himself with Scotland later in the year, although that depends on him breaking into the One Day International squad in time for Australia to take on the Saltires in a One Day International after the Ashes tour, which Hughes is warming himself up for nicely.
